Snap (SNAP) soared the day prior to earnings as the new Lightshed Partners slapped a $20 target on the stock. The market got excited about the call but need to remember that Rich Greenfield had the same target on the stock at his previous firm, BTIG.
The stock rallied back above $14 where the stock appeared a solid short candidate. Even after this rally, Snap hasn't broken the downtrend yet.
Snap reports after the close on Tuesday with analyst estimates of a $0.05 loss and revenues of $436 million. The company guided to a Q3 loss of $60 to $85 million and investors will want to key on the continuing free cash flow burn.
The stock has a market cap of $20 billion with a '20 revenue estimate of $2.2 billion. The key remains that value doesn't exist here with the stock near $15, though it's very possible Snap rallies to $20 where the valuation would be insanely stretched.
Stocks to watch at week end: Lyft (LYFT) - the launch of Lyft Rentals isn't smart. The ridesharing service appears set to create another way to lose money. A prime benefit of the service is the door-to-door service where customers get a $20 ride credit each way. In essence, Lyft is giving away rides where the company already loses money in order to obtain what might only be a daily rental for $35. A lot of the service appears better for consumers, but the company is actually offering these ride credit discounts. Until Lyft can charge premium fees, avoid the stock. Canopy Growth (CGC) - the Ontario govt has approved a plan to license 20 stores a month starting next April. Canopy Growth expected 40 stores per month starting in January leaving a 300 store gap from expectations. This stock is still headed to $10.

Kohl's has activists wanting the company to spin off the e-commerce division to unlock value. The company already has plans to grow the business and activists have yet to show how a full omni-channel business can operate as two different companies.
